Podcasts is buggy

3
The podcasts feature is still a bit buggy and doesn't have a wide enough database yet. For example, saving the play rate so you don't have to constantly set it to 1.5x, or making the queue easier to use and manage.

And I’m a bit upset. This was a great platform before all of these add-ons and ads were built in. I want to be able to disable all of the crap that comes up in search. I just want to see and use my library, not podcasts, not web videos, not anything else. Just my library. I used to recommend plex to others. Now, I’m hesitant to do so.

Very User Unfriendly

Not a fan of setup. Been trying to link NAS and Plex for 8 hours. FAQ’s are vague. Forum has been little better.

Plex iOS

1
The plex media server works more or less fine. However I paid well over $120 for the Premium version in part for the music features, including offline sync to iOS Devices and premium music library. Sync takes hours in some cases (for only a few albums). I have had a forum support ticket opened for literally 60 days with no useful help from the person at plex "assisting". Very disappointed in the iOS app. Aside from the above I have found play back of music doesn't work properly. If I press play on track one, it starts on tracks 2. I have to then skip back to get to track 1. This has happened multiple times on multiple albums. Playlist don't always play back properly in offline sync mode. Would be a great thing if it worked but the app is trash.

Not Reliable with iOS

2
I’m new to Plex, and I love the idea of keeping all my media in one place, but the iOS App is just not nearly as reliable or good as iTunes when playing downloaded (or synced) content from the iPad. I have 20 movies synced to my iPad via Plex for offline purposes, when I open the app only one out of those 20 work, Plex says the other 19 synced downloads were completed, but it’s not working and it’s just taking up precious storage space. It all works great when streaming from online or in WiFi area, which is why it gets 2 stars from me. Too bad, I’m pretty annoyed by the Plex experience thus far.

Crashes a lot when in offline mode with no internet connection

Playlist Sharing

4
PLEASE IMPLEMENT A PLAYLIST SHARING OPTION! The new “Volume Leveling” function could be improved. There is still a noticeable difference between new music and my older (hard to find) collection. Solid app otherwise.

Love it!

5
I’ve used quite a few different media servers and plex is by far the easiest. It has the best support on mobile and Pc/max/Linux. Paying for the plex pass it worth it to me, I use it to back up my photos. instead of using iCloud, I have my own cloud!

Activation fee

Activation is stupid, should be free as it is on computer / consoles

Don't recast when the app opens

1
Please for the love of f**k fix this. The Google Cast spec _explicitly_ says you are not supposed to start a new session unless the user initiates a new session. If I, let's say, start casting YouTube or turn off my TV, when I open Plex again it thinks it's time to cast again. This turns on my TV or interrupts something else. Stop.
